Overnight fruit & oat breakfast cup

One of my new favourite, go-to recipes. I’ve adapted it from a great Ayurvedic cookbook my husband gave me as a birthday present. This hits the sweet tooth spot! It’s also handy because you can make it the night before, and it’s perfect if you have to rush out the door in the morning or if you need something right away – but it doesn’t compromise on taste. I’ve included a couple different variations at the bottom: you can replace the fruit, nuts, and spices with almost anything that suits you.



Ingredients:

  • 1/3 C oats
  • 3 figs, quartered
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp walnuts, finely chopped (I run a bunch through a blender to keep on hand)
  • 2/3 C vanilla almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom

Directions:

Place all ingredients in an 8 oz canning jar. Cover tightly with its lid and give it a shake before putting in the fridge overnight. Serve at room temperature.

Variations:

Replace figs with a handful of frozen or fresh blueberries.

Replace figs with 4 dried apricots, quartered, and replace cardamom with cinnamon.
